      Villain is 23/15/0.5(VPIP/PFR/AF) after 115 hands. I played it really badly. Now I think that I should fold on the river... I never know how to play KQ against UTG raiser.... Is that call ok?

      my experince is, that if such a villain raises preflop, bets on that flop, CALLS your raise oop AND donks turn, your hand is crushed.
      I assume, that he has either KK, QQ, TT, AJ, [MAYBE JJ (unlikely), or AA (unlikely)].
      I guess you can call on turn because of way ahead/way behind.
      But fold river against that passive villain.

      Best regards,

      I think he will hold A,A often. I would fold preflop but I think the rest is fine.

      Really no matter what very strong hand he has he should just 3bet the flop with it since we can have clubs, i'd put him more on something like AK/AA that wanted to see safe turn/river cards, unless he has something insanely strong like AcJc/AcKc. I'm calling him down and making a note on his flop play no matter what he has, even tho the river bet screams AJ you'll see people overplay AA even in these spots.

      Hope it helps.
